Our Impact

 

As each woman participates in our yearlong program, she works to strengthen herself across four critical areas of social and economic empowerment.

Impact Outcomes

We monitor and measure critical changes in women's outcomes over time.  

Measurement & Evaluation

Our team collects data throughout the program and after to understand its impact on women. Through comprehensive surveys, life history interviews, in-depth internal learning exercises, and independent impact evaluations, we are constantly looking at what works, what doesn’t, and what can be done better.  

As we grow our evidence base, particularly through randomized control trials (RCTs), we actively share our learning with others to increase impact for women globally.
